7th grade english (3rd year EFL)







Dear John,

Do you practice any sport or activity? I am a very special case, because I don't like doing many times the same sport. My mom says a sport it's to be doing a lot of years! I think is monotonous, so I like doing vey sports.

I did formative gymnastics, but I think all those exercises are boring (to me it was difficult to do the perpendicular). Next I did swimming, but I don't like the exercises of my teachers. I love diving. Later I think I was good at tennis (I am very good to hit, because I hit with a lot of force and the adversary don't keep the ball).

At this moment I want to do windsurf. I like the sea and the wind. When we connect these two elements, we have a perfect combination with a lot of fun.

Send me a letter to say how is your sports life.

Hugs,  Miguel

Dear friend,

I play football because it's fun and it keeps me fit.

I haven't any team. Sometimes I play football in school with my friends and I would like to play against others sports schools.

I practice other sports as swimming and badminton, and I do activities as running, because its really important to exercise to keep healthy.

My life is very agitated.

Good-bye, friend, till tomorrow!

Hi, friend! How are you? Im fine. Do you know that I play hockey? Yes, I play it three times a week.

Hockey is cool. I play it because it's spectacular the things we can do with the stick! We can dribble and make 'amazing' things in the air with the ball.

Bye! See you later.

P.S. - In hockey we have to be very good with the skates and I'm one of the best.
